HONOLULU (AP) - The Hawaii Charter School Commission is replacing the board of an Oahu school following concerns about its failure to manage the school's financial performance.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the commission voted last month to seek new appointments to the board of Ka Waihona o ka Na'auao charter school in Nanakuli.

Commission Chairman John Kim says the board's members will be tasked with examining problems, "to clean it up and get the school back on an even keel in terms of the regulations and all of the requirements."

The commission has rated the school as "high risk" for its financial performance for the last two fiscal years. It has also questioned "pay advances" to the school's founder and administrators.

Founder Alvin Parker says the school has passed its independent financial audits.
